When do the 2021 grant rounds start and finish?
2021 Grant Round 1: 1 January 2021 – 30 April 2021
2021 Grant Round 2: 1 July 2021 – 31 October 2021
How much is awarded at each grant round?
CC-FNQ has committed $100,000 to the 2021 grant rounds, with up to $50,000 allocated per grant round.
What is the maximum grant application amount per organisation?
If my project requires more than $5000, would you consider awarding a larger grant?
Yes, however the organisation would have to present a strong case that their project would provide a significant “overall benefit to the community.”
Who decides who the grants are awarded to?
The grant selection process is performed by the CC-FNQ Board of Directors. All board members individually assess the grants against the selection criteria. The results are collated and from there discussions are made to select the final recipients. To eliminate any bias, directors must disclose a conflict of interest if they have a direct or indirect association with an organisation.
Can I submit more than one (1) application per grant round?
No. Each organisation can only provide one submission.
If my grant was unsuccessful in Round 1, can I apply for Round 2?
If I received a grant in Round 1, will I be able to apply for a grant in Round 2?
No. Organisations can only be approved funding once every twelve months. They must wait for Round 1 the following year.
If I received a grant in Round 2 in one year, can I apply for a grant in Round 1 the following year?
No. You cannot receive a grant twice in a twelve-month period. You will be eligible to apply again in Round 2 of the following year.
I missed the grant round deadline, will you accept my application?
No. The deadline is strict and all applications must be received by the closure date.
If my grant application was unsuccessful in Round 1, can you hold onto it for Round 2?
No. Each grant round starts as a “clean slate.” If you wish to re-apply, you must fill out a new application form.
How and when will I find out if I am successful or unsuccessful?
You will be notified via email within one month of the application closure date if your grant has been successful or unsuccessful.
